This document specifies a real-time polymerase chain reaction (real-time PCR) method for the qualitative detection of horse-specific DNA derived from food and feed. It requires the extraction of an adequate amount of PCR amplifiable DNA from the relevant matrix and can be applied to the detection of horse material derived from domestic horse (Equus caballus), mule (Equus caballus ♀ × Equus asinus ♂), hinny (Equus caballus ♂ × Equus asinus ♀) and zebroid (Equus caballus × Equus simplicidens). The...view more

This document specifies a real-time polymerase chain reaction (real-time PCR) method for the qualitative detection of porcine-specific DNA derived from food and feed. It requires the extraction of an adequate amount of PCR amplifiable DNA from the relevant matrix and can be applied to the detection of porcine material derived from pig (Sus scrofa domesticus) and wild boar (Sus scrofa). The target sequence is a partial fragment of the Sus scrofa beta actin (ACTB) gene, partial cds. (i.e. GenBank ...view more

This document specifies a real-time polymerase chain reaction (real-time PCR) method for the qualitative detection of donkey-specific DNA derived from food and feed. It requires the extraction of an adequate amount of PCR amplifiable DNA from the relevant matrix and can be applied to the detection of donkey material derived from donkey (Equus asinus), mule (Equus caballus ♀ × Equus asinus ♂) and hinny (Equus caballus ♂ × Equus asinus ♀). The assay also detects the species zebra (Equus burchellii...view more

This document specifies a real-time polymerase chain reaction (real-time PCR) method for the qualitative detection of ovine-specific DNA derived from food and feed. It requires the extraction of an adequate amount of PCR amplifiable DNA from the relevant matrix and can be applied to the detection of ovine material derived from sheep (Ovis aries). The target sequence is a partial fragment of the ovine nuclear prolactin receptor short form mRNA gene (PRLR) (i.e. GenBank accession number AF041979.1...view more
